DO YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE AT INTEL WHO IS THINKING ABOUT RETIRING?
The process of retiring can generate questions and concerns, as well as anticipation. The Intel Retiree Organization (IRO) is here as a resource. Spread the word that our mailbox (intelretiree@gmail.com) is available to help with specific questions and/or to request a 1-on-1 with an IRO officer or committee chair. And don’t forget our web site at intelretiree.com which is the home of the Retirement Timeline. The Retirement Timeline has an entire section dedicated to “Pre-Retirement: Leaving Intel – What you need to know.” We strive to be a valuable resource for Intel retirees – old and new!

WHERE IS THE INTEL INVOLVED PAYOUT CHECK FOR MY NON-PROFIT?
Last month we posted the first payout report listing the non-profits that have received checks for submitted 2015 volunteer hours. If the non-profit(s) you submitted hours for was  not listed it is probably due to missing paperwork. Click here for details on what is required. At least two additional payouts will be made for non-profits who complete the paperwork late. Email (retiree.volunteers@intel.com) any specific question on missing payouts.
